when sam first met gabe's nonno (italian for grandpa), he was pretty amazed that his very own grandpa mark had a dad. we explained to sam that he could call him 'nonno' just as we did. but it just didn't take with him...instead sam began to refer to nonno as 'grandpa mark's dad' - even when talking to him directly (sam: hi, grandpa mark's dad)
fausto doro pasquale romeo oswaldo angerilli turns 90 this coming october. the family celebrated at the italian cultural centre with an evening of eating, drinking and a mean round of bocce.
happy 90th grandpa mark's dad. what a remarkable life you have!
